Looking Ahead

You cannot go forward by constantly looking back in the rear vision mirror.

C.S. Lewis wrote, “there are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

Today, I want to encourage you to stop looking back (at the good or bad) and like the apostle Paul, “forget those things which are behind and reach forward to those things which are ahead so that you may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of you” (Philippians 3:12).

Your greatest ministry is before and not behind you.
Your greatest days are ahead and not behind you.
Your greatest marriage memories are in your future and not in your past.
Your best moments with your kids have yet to happen.
Your greatest accomplishments are before you.

Don’t let your past limits define your future, but let the Word of God and His promises define your future.

God has been constantly reminding me through various sources that the best is really yet to come!  Our best days are still in front of us if we continue to dream and place those dreams in God’s hands.  He is more than able to handle it and He has our best interests at heart.  He cares more than we do about how our lives will turn out.
Look ahead and be excited for all God is doing and what he is going to do!
